about

Back in the day (or actually up until this year) I went by the name Dylan Grimm and made A TON of music under that name. Some of it was really good and some of it.......well, not so much. But as time moved forward I evolved and grew and changed and rebranded, bringing an end to the era of Dylan Grimm.

Euphoria: The Complete Collection is the best of what I made. Containing six singles, three EPs, and one LP this is this final catalog and closing statement of the project. And it's super limited edition. After September 9th you won't be able to get or listen to or see the majority of what's inside this collection again. So jump on it!

Track Name: Stroma
# Stroma
These mountains look like cutouts
Silhouettes on sunset skies
I turn to see the reflection of the dashboard
Flicker in your eyes

Where we're headed we don't care
But this road might take us there
Another getaway to clear my mind
Another lover to waste my time

In our lives
We want to run the show
But when it’s our time
We can’t seem to let go

Pushing 80 on the highway
Past the Vegas strip
The bright lights and LED screens
They flash sex and broken dreams

Where we're headed we don't care
But this road might take us there
Another getaway to clear my mind
Another fantasy to waste my time

In our lives
We want to run the show
But when it’s our time
We can’t seem to let go

So in the mean time
Pack your bags
And jump in the car
Hit the gas
And don’t look back
Lets head for the stars

In our lives
We want to run the show
But when it’s our time
We can’t seem to let go

Where we're headed we don't care
But this road might take us there
Another getaway to clear my mind
Another lover to waste my time
Track Name: Pop Music Is Not A Crime
# Pop Music Is Not A Crime
Four on the floor, and we're looking for release
We came to dance off the stress of the week
Saw you walking in and I got thirsty
That's when I thought to grab myself a drink

But there you were at the bar, going on about
How Ke$ha sucks and music’s fucked
Bringing the vibe down

We just wanna let loose and have fun

So let us dance until we see the sun
From party animals on the prowl
To the kid on the street who wants get down
If the Top 40 is a crime
Lock us up, we'll serve our time
Until that day, keep the music loud
Coz pop music is not a crime

On our way to the after party And we've got that killer
Bellrave track repeating
You tagged along, I can't complain
It all seems good
Judging by your lips against my neck

But then you stop, to remark

Why you gotta say
How Britney's shit, she buys her hits

Bringing the vibe down

We just wanna let loose and have fun
So let us dance until we see the sun
From party animals on the prowl
To the kid on the street who wants get down
If the Top 40 is a crime
Lock us up, we'll serve our time
Until that day, keep the music loud
Coz pop music is not a crime
Track Name: Dreaming
One step forward, eight feet back
The trains all move, but there's no track
The sun is out, but there's no light
Something about this world
Just doesn't feel right

You say "Three steps wrong, make my left"
And I reply with just as much sense
Thunder whispers, and the rain rises
In blue pixels on the horizon

But then it's clear to me
Everything I see came from my mind
I'm dreaming in borrowed time

Then it hits me, a memory
Of you and I
Free falling through the sky
I'm sorry, forgive me
But it could only hold one
So I gave you wings to fly

Now it's clear to me
Everything I see came from my mind
I'm dreaming on borrowed time
Track Name: Ink
It's time I made my peace
A solemn walk through broken dreams
Lost in memories of what I thought was true
This wonderland of ice and snow
Tainted black by the words you throw
Has become my new canvas
And I’m letting go

Since I've got a heartbreak destiny
I'll fall in love with the sounds that guide me
And let the ink numb this once beautiful soul
'Til it can't feel anymore

A storyteller once told me a tale of grief
So intense I could barely bring myself to speak
But once those words had finally clicked
They broke the wall and I fell for it
And while I believe the tale is true
How can I be sure when it came from you?

I'll black out my heart shaped sleeve
And cover up what's left of me
Inscribe designs of solid gold
To be reborn with terms of my own

Since I've got a heartbreak destiny
I'll fall in love with the sounds that guide me
And let the ink numb this once beautiful soul
'Til it can't feel anymore

'Til it can't feel anymore
Don't wanna feel anymore
Track Name: Generation Y (feat. Grim & Reaper)
My generation has been described as lazy, narcissistic, and delusional. Yes, some of have a hard time holding down a job and a lot of us crave "me" time, on and off the clock. It shouldn't come as a surprise that some of us, like myself, are highly materialistic. I mean, I think Madison Montgomery said it best. It's because we're the first generation where every kid gets a trophy just for showing up.

There is another trait unique to The Mellenials, or Generation Y. We are the first generation to grow up with an ever evolving landscape of interconnected technology at our fingertips. Now, my generation didn't create the Internet, but we are the first look at how it changed a species. It goes everywhere with us. We're connected to each other 24/7. We are truly the global generation.
Track Name: Vanity (feat. Grim & Reaper)
Who needs the catwalk
When you’ve got city streets?
Just watch me walk coz my fashion is on fleek
Asymmetric, monochrome sophistication
With silver tongued savoir-faire
I’m fucking perfection

Vanity thy name is Grimm
Buy me all the latest sins
Black Scale and Nu Goth
Who cares about the cost?
ZERO Collection tops the charts
But Saberi still owns this heart
Haute couture, this bear j'adore
Like a drug, I'm craving more

A living shadow, standing five foot seven
I’ll drag you to down to aesthetic heaven
So bring your MacBook and an iPhone 6
And I’ll bring some blk water just for kicks

Vanity thy name is Grimm
These clothes replaced my skin
Insecurities melt away
Coz in these rags I'm on display
A little Mugler will get you face
But it takes more to get a taste
So buy me Owens to get me off
Coz everyone knows that fashion talks
Track Name: City Lights (feat. Tim Hilberts)
Put a spark to the night
Open up, turning on the light
Steer away from the lonely day
To the corridor to life

One by one we come undone
And now we run
To the city lights
And move into the night time

There’s something comforting
About that bright orange glow
The salt laced streets
Lined from the daily ebb and flow

One by one we come undone
And now we run
To the city lights
And move into the night time
Track Name: DNA (feat. kCopes)
Well, well, well ain’t it ‘bout that time?
Copes been mute, but he still got the rhymes
I been riding the pine, surveying sounds
But I flip on the switch and I’m back on the ground

Coz it’s love for the game that I play
This was never Plan A, this was never for the pay
Man, I sat back in basements and rapped
Ended on blogs and made me some fans

Do It lIke us, you don’t do it for the math
Do it for the track, man, do it for the path
Do it for the fun, and the friends
Ended with both, just how I planned

So why talk scores?
What board?
Writer by day, airman by night
Salt Lake forever, kCopes for life

King of the Heights, go believe in the hype
We don’t need your injection to feel high
Just give us space, a beat, and we can fly
We’re not members of the designer drug nation
Just designers of new world innovation

It’s in our DNA
We blur the lines between work and play
The self-sustained, hi-tech, art creatures
That taught ourselves to be future leaders

Conduits made of silver and gold
Replace the veins that we all hold
Who needs blood when you’ve got data?
Just hope you’re ready for what we’ll make ya

My mind moves at a thousand miles an hour
A tuned machine of massive power
Part of a new breed that's stuck in dreams of
Freedom, beauty, truth, and love

It’s in our DNA
It’s in our DNA
It’s in our DNA
It’s in our DNA

We don’t need your injection to feel high
Just give us space, a beat, and we can fly
We’re not members of the designer drug nation
Just designers of new world innovation

It’s in our DNA
Track Name: Highlands
Condensation on a window pane
Looking out to see all these concrete veins
This is all we want, this is all we need
Muted morning tones and a pastel dream

Over seeing our town
We made it clear we're never climbing down

On our city’s rooftops we are kings and queens
(One nation high above the ground)
These are our highlands, where we are free
(And we're never giving up our crown)

In these our cities
We have our tales
The ones where we succeed
And the ones where we fail

Over seeing our town
We made it clear we're never climbing down

On our city’s rooftops we are kings and queens
(One nation high above the ground)
These are our highlands, where we are free
(And we're never giving up our crown)

On our city’s rooftops we are kings and queens
And together we are one
These are our highlands, where we are free
Yeah, we are free

On our city’s rooftops we are kings and queens
These are our highlands, where we are free
Track Name: Back Again (feat. S.F. Shields)
These days have become so stale
I wonder what it’s like to really feel
(Unlike the ghosts we always see)
Don’t want this I.V.
Pull it out of me
Please let us think on our own
(We want to know what it’s like to be free)

Breathe it out, breathe it out, breathe it out now
Clear the toxins and let your colors show
Let ‘em glow

What are you waiting for let's go
Your spirits restless, don't you know?
Fight like you've got something to prove
Stand up, it's time you made your move
It’s still there, you’ve just been mislead
So spread the word, art ain’t really dead
We’ve lost the love that we once had
It’s time we brought it back again

I want the cure to the drug
That numbed our minds
(And tried to leave art behind)

Breathe it in, breathe it in, breathe it in and
Spread your wings to up the sky
It’s time to fly

What are you waiting for let's go
Your spirits restless, don't you know?
Fight like you've got something to prove
Stand up, it's time you made your move
It’s still there, you’ve just been mislead
So spread the word, art ain’t really dead
We’ve lost the love that we once had
It’s time we brought it back again

Track Name: HUSH
This party’s going off
And it’s going strong
It’s blazing hotter than the summer sun
You’ve caught my eye, with the way that you move
Now, I think it’s time I got to know you

Una noche sólo tú y yo

This night, this night, esta noche
Ven a bailar
Mi amor, mi amor, por una noche
Ven a bailar

When I finally reached him, he asked my name
No importa, babe, it’s all the same
I took him by the hand to a more private space
And now we’re dancing face to face

Una noche sólo tú y yo

This night, this night, esta noche
Ven a bailar
Mi amor, mi amor, por una noche
Ven a bailar
Track Name: ZEN
I can feel it in my dreams now
It's the madness that's inside
And it's trying to consume me
By feeding off my pride

There’s a monster underneath my skin
And it’s trying to break free
It’s ripping flesh from bone
And everyday it becomes more like me

Inside out, I'm falling back into
A life I never asked for
Another day, another shot
I've missed at finding happy ever after

It’s stolen my serenity
My quiet state of mind
No more solace in my work now
Feels like I’m only buying time

There’s a monster underneath my skin
And it’s trying to break free
It’s ripping flesh from bone
And everyday it becomes more like me

I’m breathing out
I’m breathing in
I'm reaching up
But I can’t find who I am

How do I?
How do I?
How do I find zen again?

I’m taking it day by day
I’m making it day by day
I’m faking it day by day

Inside out, I'm falling back into
A life I never asked for
Another day, another shot
I've missed at finding happy ever after
Track Name: ELYSIUM
It's 1am and the drinks are strong
The party's top-notch, there's nothing wrong
But I don't wanna be here, not tonight
Maybe he moods fucked up, or the vibe ain't right

I wanna walk to the arms of the city
And let them carry me home
Fluorescent day dreams
In the neon jungle
Will keep me safe and warm

It’s 9pm, they let the intro run
The stage is set, the lights are on
I can hear the crowd from behind the stage
The venue is packed, it’s time to rage
They paid good money to see the show
Yet all I wanna do is pack up and go
Coz I don’t wanna be here, not tonight
Maybe the moods fucked up, or vibe ain’t right

I wanna walk to the arms of the city
And let them carry me home
Fluorescent day dreams
In the neon jungle
Will keep me safe and warm
Track Name: [bliss.]
It’s in the air
You can smell it like the rain
It’s hanging there
In the sweet summer breeze

Let’s make this night last forever
We can take forever

Bliss, in you and me
Together we could be
Endlessly in love
Bliss, entangled in each other
In these sheets we could be
Helplessly in love

It’s in our veins
We can feel it like a drug
It must be fate
To have met here tonight

Are we in a haze
Or is it just this club now?
Should we misbehave
Or keep it down low?

Bliss, in you and me
Together we could be
Endlessly in love
Bliss, entangled in each other
In these sheets we could be
Helplessly in love
Track Name: Finding Atlantis (feat. Maja Nilsson)
Follow the storm Past the warning signs
Way out to sea
And beyond the edge of time

Chase the wind
For it holds the key
To what you're searching for
And what will set you free

Head out where
Water is the only sound
For this sea, it tells a tale
Of shipwrecked destiny
Sail fog bound

Through the wind and rain
Follow the waves
They'll lead you safe and sound
Track Name: Blue
Sunset daydreams
Peek through stormy skies
Another day wasted
Watching waves roll by

I'd take it all back
I'd let it soak in
If only I'd known
This city would never be the same again

I want to sink deeper into the blueCarried by a current straight to you
And once I hit the bottom
Safe from the roaring tide
My story will be carved in stone
And passed through time

I watched it all happen
I saw the ground give way
The sea closed over head
As we lost the light of day

We had no warning
We had no time
A city left in ruins
By the gods that made it climb

I want to sink deeper into the blue
Carried by a current straight to you
And once I hit the bottom
Safe from the roaring tide
My story will be carved in stone
And passed through time
Track Name: My Getaway (2016 Version)
ake me above the clouds I want to be so far away
Up where we can't hear the sound
Of the cityscape today

Out where the stars are the light
Without gravity we'll play
Take me above the clouds
I've got to escape today
My getaway

Way up above the sky
I won't look back down now
I can finally feel the warmth the sun
And can I finally see
What you really meant to me
All because I ran away
Took my escape today
My getaway

Floating so free, just you and me

Come and take my hand
We can make this last forever
Forever

Come fly away with me
Come fly away with me

My getaway
Track Name: Lovesick (2016 Version)
Waiting here, waiting here, waiting patiently For you, for you, for you to see
All the ways, all the ways, that you turned on me
They're drifting by, drifting by, but you won't see

If we had one more night
Could we have gotten by?
If you said we're in the clear
Then why did you leave me here?

Out of control, don't know what to do
I get lovesick at the sight of you
My heart's caught in a headlock
Baby I just can't let go

Let's rewind, let's rewind, let's the clock
And take it back to when we used to talk
About the things, about the things
That we thought we knew
And all the shit, all the shit
That we said we'd do

We were the greatest pair
We were dancing through the air
So why did we fall apart?
Can we take it from the start?
Out of control, don't know what to do

I get lovesick at the sight of you
My heart's caught in a headlock
Baby I just can't let go
And when you look, when you look

When you look at me
I get this feeling that its meant to be
So can we get together
Even if it's just one night?

Please don't leave me standing here
Alone with all these fears
I don't know why you walked away
But I can't take another day

Out of control, don't know what to do
I get lovesick at the sight of you
My heart's caught in a headlock
Baby I just can't let go
And when you look, when you look

When you look at me
I get this feeling that its meant to be
So can we get together
Even if it's just one night?
Track Name: ZEN (RESPIN Remix)
I can feel it in my dreams now
It's the madness that's inside
And it's trying to consume me
By feeding off my pride

There’s a monster underneath my skin
And it’s trying to break free
It’s ripping flesh from bone
And everyday it becomes more like me

Inside out, I'm falling back into
A life I never asked for
Another day, another shot
I've missed at finding happy ever after

It’s stolen my serenity
My quiet state of mind
No more solace in my work now
Feels like I’m only buying time

There’s a monster underneath my skin
And it’s trying to break free
It’s ripping flesh from bone
And everyday it becomes more like me

I’m breathing out
I’m breathing in
I'm reaching up
But I can’t find who I am

How do I?
How do I?
How do I find zen again?

I’m taking it day by day
I’m making it day by day
I’m faking it day by day

Inside out, I'm falling back into
A life I never asked for
Another day, another shot
I've missed at finding happy ever after
